Legendary Original Bones® Swiss bearings are the optimum combination of Bones® Skate Rated® design and Swiss precision manufacturing creating the standard by which all other bearings are measured. For more than 24 years preferred by the world’s top professional skaters. Proven, professional competition-grade speed and durability make Bones® Swiss normally last several times as long as ordinary ABEC rated bearings.
Bones® Swiss “L2”
The New Bones® Swiss L2 bearings feature a new shield that reduces drag and increases the overall speed of the bearing. The Bones® Swiss L2's have a new redesigned inner race and two new labyrinth shields to keep the dirt out longer, but still allow easy maintenance when necessary.
The only difference you will notice is that the L2 Swiss will last several times longer than the original Bones® Swiss bearings between cleanings. This significant increase in service life comes at a very small increase in retail cost, so the value is greatly increased.
Bones® Super Swiss 6
This unique design features six larger diameter balls instead of the seven balls used in most 608 bearings. The advantage of this design is higher speed, faster acceleration, greater strength and durability.
Bones® Swiss Ceramics
Bones® Swiss Ceramics are in a class by themselves. If you want the best there is, this is it. The Cerbec® Ceramic balls are much lighter, harder, stronger, and longer lasting than the finest steel balls.
Bones® REDS® are manufactured in China to our Bones Skate Rated®specifications in a manufacturing facility dedicated to producing the highest quality skate bearings in China. They are inspected twice before being shiped to skaters and offer the greatest combination of performance, durability and low cost in the industry. Because they offer near Bones® Swiss performance at a fraction of the cost, they have become the best selling bearing brand in the U.S.A.
Bones® Super REDS®
Super REDS® are designed from the ground up to be the best bearing on the market at this price point. What Super REDS® are not is a REDS® bearing with just better super finishing (surface polishing). Super REDS® are a superior quality bearing, using higher quality steel races, better quality and grade balls, and a superior surface finish. The result is a bearing that is as fast as REDS® but quieter, smoother, and longer lasting. Super REDS® use a black shield and laser engraving to differentiate themselves from original REDS®.
Bones® Ceramic Super REDS®
The story of Ceramic Super REDS® is simple. Take the superior steels used in our Super REDS® and swap the steel balls for grade 5, silicone nitrade, hot isostatically pressed ceramic balls and you have Bones Ceramic Super REDS®.
Bones® Ceramic Super REDS® are lighter and provide faster acceleration because the balls weigh much less. They create less friction and are thus faster than Super REDS™, with or without lubricant! When you get dirt into your Ceramic Super REDS®, the ceramic balls will help to re-polish the steel races flat again, providing a self-healing benefit because ceramic balls are so much harder than steel. Finally, ceramic balls will not rust, further lengthening their life. Ceramic Super REDS® use a bone colored shield with laser-engraved outer races for identification.
